Tim and I are headed out this morning for a meeting with our marketing guy. His company is building our new website - it is almost ready. We have a few things to discuss with him about it, but they are small issues.
The thing is for me is that I don't always think of myself as a business woman. I am a wife and mother, a daughter and a friend, but business woman?
When we did our event at Hershey a few weeks ago, I had been feeling like we would show up and be the "country cousins" so to speak. I mean a huge fur company was there and a big diamond store! I worried that we would be seen as 'lesser than' and be fish out of water.
However, as soon as we arrived we were treated as if we belonged there. We were one of their vendors, one of the co-ordinators said "I'm so excited your here. It's such great exposure for your store. I'd never heard of you before." Our business was booming that day, while others around us didn't do as well.
I learned a huge lesson that day. We are a legitimate business. We have great products and offer great, personalized service.
So today, I'm putting on my business woman's hat and having a meeting. I have hired this company to provide a service for us. He is working on a website for our business. God has lead us down this path and has equipped me with everything I need to do it.
I am hoping that our grand opening of the website will be by November 1st! Just in time for your holiday shopping pleasure! I looked at the calendar and realized that there are only 29 more days until Black Friday!
I've got a lot to do before then!
